Therefore, once the network settings, especially the IP address, have been entered correctly, select Use fixed IP address then the Network Camera will skip installation at the next boot. The Network Camera can automatically restart and operate normally after a power

outage. Users can run IP installer to check the IP address assigned to the Network Camera if the IP address is forgotten or using the UPnP function provided by the Network Camera (MS Windows XP provides UPnP function at My Network Place).

IP address: This is necessary for network identification.

Subnet mask: This is used to determine if the destination is in the same subnet. The default value is “”.

Default router: This is the gateway used to forward frames to destinations in a different subnet.
